Veteran TMC leader Tapas Roy quits as MLA
Kolkata, March 4: Dealing a blow to the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress, veteran leader Tapas Roy quit his party and resigned as its MLA on Monday, citing disillusionment with the TMC leadership. Roy submitted his resignation to Assembly Speaker Biman Banerjee and stated that he had already put in his papers on March 1 for the multiple party and government positions he held. Roy, a five-time MLA, accused the TMC and its supremo Mamata Banerjee of “deserting him during trying circumstances”, expressing his frustration over the party’s silence when his residence was raided by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on January 12.The TMC, however, alleged that Roy was exerting “undue pressure for a ticket” from the North Kolkata seat for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. Roy’s resignation gave rise to fervent speculations on whether the senior leader would join the BJP, or for that matter, any other opposition party in the state.
Roy, on his part, maintained that he would take that decision in “due time”. (PTI)
